I would love to be a part of this. I have heard of a similar movement called Empty Bowl and spoken to another potter about planning an event.
Last Saturday I wiped clean my bowl of robust vegan mushroom soup with a hearty crust of bread. Every morsel was worth savoring. Not only because of the pleasing texture and taste, but because of the occasion’s intent.
The Second Annual Hungry Bowls gathering, a local re-creation of the international Empty Bowls effort, raises awareness and money for Carroll County’s Flint Street and Loaves and Fishes Food Banks. The event is powered by my neighbor, Jim Wallace, and other area potters who handcraft hundreds of soup bowls and pull together the community dinner.
$20 buys Hungry Bowl attendees a unique bowl of one’s choosing, a meal of soup and bread donated by local restaurants, and an evening of good company along with the toe-tapping music of Jerry Jones and Friends. All celebrated in the Eureka Springs High School cafeteria. Simple. Down home.
